DGA Statement on Alaska Governor’s Race

Latest News

Tonight, Democratic Governors Association Executive Director Elisabeth Pearson released the following statement on Bill Walker dropping out of the governor’s race in Alaska:
“This is a game changer in the Alaska Governor’s race. This race immediately becomes a tossup, open-seat race between a popular Democrat in Mark Begich and a fringe Republican in Mike Dunleavy. 
“Mark Begich has a record of putting Alaska priorities first and working across party lines to deliver for the state. Mike Dunleavy has a reckless record of pushing an extreme social agenda while making history as the least effective legislator in a generation. Dunleavy is the only majority-party senator in the past 30 years who wasn’t the primary sponsor on a bill that became law. Mark Begich is in a strong position to win in Alaska this November.”
